Cover: This took the longest time to figure out what I wanted to do. When I think of what makes me happy so much comes to mind and it makes it hard to choose. I started by creating the white flower out of white cardstock and then covered it in Mod Podge so it would hold up to being on the cover. The colored flowers came from my stash and were also covered with Mod Podge. After they completely dried they took on the look of leather, very cool. The butterfly was embossed onto white cardstock and colored in with Distress inks. You can't tell by the photo but I then cover it with Glossy Accents to give it a nice shine. Same thing is done with the Closed for Restoration sign. I love everything about this cover.
